    Polysyllabophobics

    The worlds largest technical word is pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism.
    The longest non-technical word is flocci*nauci*nihili*pili*fication ("the act of estimating something as worthless,")

    Determined to be the longest word in the English language used in regular conversation although I got no clue who the hell uses it.

    You guys ain't trying (although I would have started with Antidisestablishmentarianism)
    I've got you all beat, because my word, is more than just a word. It's a town.....

    Tetaumatawhakatangihangakoauaotamateaurehaeaturipukapihimaungahoronukupokai whenuaakitanarahu

    ....in New Zealand. It is 92 characters long, and means "The brow [or summit] of the hill [or place], where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid [down], climbed [up] and swallowed mountains, [to travel the land], [who is] known as the land eater, played [on] his [nose] flute to his loved one"........apparently.

    And to top it all off, -=HERE=- is a link to the sign for the hill......

    I was just thinking of that place! It's not far from where I live, actually.

    I'm studying for a biochem exam at the moment and some of the names in that are pretty formidable- Beta-Hydroxyacyl-ACP dehydratase just happens to be on the page I'm looking at but they get worse. And that one's got an abbreviation in the middle!
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!

    asevarikkopilttuu

    This word has exactly 1787 letters. The hyphenation was done by hand, so it may look weird on some machines.
    How is this possible? Words this long don't exist.
    The word is made possible by the grammatical rules of the Finnish language. Finnish uses compound words instead of prepositions to describe complicated things. Take for example the word "rauta", iron. You can add the word "tie", road, to the end and get "rautatie", a railway. You can also add the word "hammas", a tooth, to the beginning to get "hammasrauta", braces (literally an iron of the tooth). The fun part is that it is grammatically correct to join these two words to get "hammasrautatie". This is a concise and compact word meaning a railway that runs on teeth or a road made of braces. (Although, being a pun, it is quite impossible to translate properly.) This word can then be extended to "hammasrautatietyö", which means repairs on the tooth railway and so on.

    The word shown at the top of the screen was made like that. I and Ville 3 were talking rubbish and somehow we started expanding a word. I added words to the end and he added them to the beginning. After some ten words we realized we were on to something. We fired up Emacs and started writing. After a couple of days the word was done.
    Is this really the longest word in the world?
    That depends. It fulfills the following requirements:

    * It is grammatically correct.
    * No word within it is repeated.
    * All consecutive word pairs are meaningful.

    However, these arguments suggest that it is not a word:

    * It isn't a word per se, it is just a combination of words.
    * Some word pairs aren't natural, they seem a bit forced.

    The final decision depends on your definition of word. However this word is the longest word known by the authors that satisfies the three requirements listed above.

    Note especially that chemical compounds, biological terms etc do not qualify under these requirements, since they usually just spell out the chemical structure. Large compounds always have repetitive structure, which causes a violation of the second requirement above.

    Why on earth did you do this?
    For fun.
    Can the word be made longer?
    Easily. If you read the grammatical explanation above, you should realize that Finnish allows for words of arbitrary length. We decided to stop when the screen got full.
    Does this word serve any purpose in life?
    But of course! It has, among others, the following uses:

    * Test your spell checker for bugs.
    * Impress your friends by reciting it from memory.
    * Use it for teaching purposes. It makes an excellent exercise for the course "Really, really advanced Finnish".
    * If you hate Finnish, you can use it as an example of how horrible the language is.
    * Have it tattooed on your leg. Make sure the tattoo guy knows what he is doing.
    * Search for the hidden triple compound words.

    What is a triple compound word?
    A triple compound word is a finnish pun, where you combine two compound words to get a new unexpected word. An example is the previously mentioned hammasrautatie. There are several of these words hidden in the big word. Enjoy. (You must be rather fluent in Finnish to get any enjoyment out of this. And perhaps a bit eccentric.)

    Note that you can form these words in English too, but it is a lot more difficult. Take, for example, "cluebatman", the mythical superhero who appears at nights to beat some sense into totally clueless people.
    What does the word mean?
    To be exact, it doesn't mean anything. If you want to study the word deeper, here is a detailed breakdown. On the left the actual words and their translations are listed one by one. On the right is the compound word formed by the word on the left and the one above that.

    Some words are jargon, special terms, "professional language" or otherwise difficult to translate. So you shouldn't trust the translations blindly. The letters XXX mean that we didn't come up with a proper translation.
